It's been brilliant following the stories of everybody who lived in BarM in the 70s. I grew up in Quarrywood Road in the 60s/70s and moved away in 1984.

I'm wondering if anybody has any photos of the "The Field" behind Quarrywood that contained the amazing playground of the Bing, The Blackie, the "Torch & Battery" and the old Robroyston brickworks (with its 2 chimneys, demolished around 1970 I'd guess).

The area is now a landscaped park area and, I'm sure, much nicer in some ways, but there was a great feeling of freedom and adventure when playing in the industrial wasteland.

Hi John Gunn, I am Maria McGlynn I think you lived across from Mary Hardie her and I were best of friends back in the 80's and now still. We used to talk from time to time but I think you were a little older. I live in Canada now and been here since 1987. Just wanted to say hi.

Hi, Maria. I'd be lying if I said I remembered you, but it's possible you are talking about the other John Gunn that lived in Quarrywood. I lived at 61 and the other John was at 84. What are the chances?!

Either way, good to hear from you. I hope all is well with you and yours in Canada.

Para, Yes. I remember them very well. I was in the same class as Maria McGarrell, and I remember Sandra Welch being a bit of a tomboy! They lived almost next door to each other, and close to the Gallachers 357? Ryehill Rd.

I showed my dad this post his name is Eddie McGarrell. He remembers you and you brothers Anthony Brian ,Paul and your sister Diane,from Ryemount Rd next door to the Coulters.My gran still stays in Barmulloch.

and so does Sandra Welch.I listened in amusement when he told me he used to sit in with your brothers whilst your dad took your mum to work in the taxis

So, do I presume from your moniker, that you followed your Dad and Grandad's line of work? How's your Auntie Maria, does she still write with very small writing. (Funny, the things you remember about people!) Is there a connection with Sandra Welch and you? Regarding my mum going to work in the taxi base, Tony and I became taxi drivers, and my mum re-married,......... a taxi driver!! Nice to hear from you anyway. Give my regards to Eddie and Maria. Hail Hail.

Hi Ogey I hve tried to convince my dad to come on here so watch this space.I didn't follow in his or my granddads footsteps.The Welchs are I think the only original neihgbours left from that era. Barmulloch must have been one hell of a place to grow up.My Aunt Maria stays in Moodiesburn and says hello and you were right about her writing.

Hello folks, just joined, hope some of you can help me. I'm researching the past of JOHN WATT, who passed away in 2002. He lived in Rye Road. He was a taxi driver and I believe he was once in the Royal Navy, ( but jumped ship ) He also had two sisters : Margaret and Mary. Hope you can give some input. Cheers.

Hi Tracey, I am ages with Derek, but, it's not a name I'm familiar with. Do you know where exactly they stayed? Did he have a nick-name?
